Wordfence, a leading provider of security products and services, has issued an emergency bulletin advising users of the Firefox browser of a potentially serious security issue.
They write, “if you use Firefox, we recommend you temporarily switch browsers to Chrome, Safari or a non-firefox based browser that is secure until the Firefox dev team can release an update. The vulnerability allows an attacker to execute code on your Windows workstation. The exploit is in the wild, meaning it’s now public and every hacker on the planet has access to it. There is no fix at the time of this writing.”
